Silent Auction 2023

14th Annual Haiti Mission

Golf Tournament & Bec’s Silent Auction

  April 24, 2023

Hello Friends:

We have surpassed our Sponsor goal of $150,000 in donations and pledges for the 2023 Silent Auction.  Since our last email we received additional Gold and Builder Sponsors which have raised our current total to $175,300.  Mesi anpil and Bondye beni to all of our generous sponsors!  It is clear from the donor phase that God’s plan is that we should continue to build a minimum of four homes per month. Each home cost $8000 with $4000 contributed from money raised from the SA. 


We are close to our goal of $192,000 for the Silent Auction which will provide matching funds for the next 48 homes.  Any amount raised over our goal will be used as matching money for additional homes.  Thanks to all who have participated thus far to make the event a success.
